The free and open exchange of knowledge empowers people, promotes accountability and sparks creativity. However, publishing and using data for social good can sometimes have the opposite result: cautionary tales are shared in corridors and back channels about open data projects that empowered the powerful, endangered the powerless, and generally made things worse while honestly trying to help. 

This session will present real life stories from the Dark Side of Data, and provide a conversation space for all those who wish to share their experiences of community data snafus, ranging from hilarious to perilous, with the goal of transparently learning from our failures, and empowering new projects with roadmaps on how to open and share responsibly. 

CKX would like to recognize and thank Serendip (@SerendipAdvisor) for their generous support in bringing this session and the Engine Room team to the CKX Summit.
